Hangover Eggs

When you’re needing some carbs and protein and a kick to the system these sausages and eggs are just the ticket.

Mr WDC
A useful cure to the Christmas excesses.

What you need

1 or 2 eggs, cooked as you like

1 or 2 sausages (leftover sausages are good, even leftover salami)

1 cup chicken stock

1 small shallot chopped

1 tsp tomato puree

1/4 tsp sugar

1/2 – 1 tsp smoked ‘hot’ Spanish paprika

A few herbs such as thyme, bay, oregano and rosemary (optional)

1/2 tsp sherry vinegar or other vinegar – or squeeze of lemon

Butter and salt and pepper

Small bunch fresh chopped chives

Toast



How Dad Cooked It

Eggs in a spicy broth. The idea came from trying to make an ordinary sausage taste like a chorizo. In fact this is better than chorizo with eggs – it’s milder and easier on the stomach but still has the kick of smoked paprika and chilli. The dish really needs some chicken stock – if you don’t have fresh stock use a can of chicken consomme or a stock cube. 

  1. Put the shallot in  pan with the stock and bring to a simmer, add the herbs if using and the tomato paste and sugar. Simmer whilst the sausages are cooking – it should reduce to about half a cup.
  2. Fry the sausages until done or nearly done. Cut the sausages into chunks and fry again to lightly colour.
  3. Drain the fat from the sausage pan and strain the stock into the pan. Add the paprika to taste and the vinegar. Let the liquid simmer and reduce a little.
  4. Fry the egg in some butter and toast some bread.
  5. Put the egg on a plate and add the sausages and broth. Add chopped chives and serve with toast. Season to taste.

Strawberry Flan

This is based on an Erdbeer-Biskuit-Kuchen recipe from a German fruit flan cookbook. I was given the book during a recent trip to Germany by our hosts during ‘Kaffee und Kuchen’ (traditional coffee and cake social just after lunch). This flan was served with the coffee and I was surprised that the base was homemade. So I found my own special sponge tin, did some translating and started baking. There are many quick cheats for this recipe which means it can be knocked up in no time. Or there is the full WDC method which will take a little longer…

Quick Lasagne with Tuna and Sliced Vegetables

This is one of the best things I have made. A moment of serendipity, just when you can’t imagine what to cook, something rather good comes out of nowhere…
